The Arosa bear sanctuary will open its doors in summer 2018. Visitors to the sanctuary can observe bears from a large visitors’ platform, while children can play in the “Bear School” children’s corner.
The animal welfare organisation VIER PFOTEN is working in partnership with the Arosa bear foundation on the Arosa bear sanctuary animal protection project. From summer 2018 five bears that were freed from poor captive conditions will live in the sanctuary. They will be able to return to living in their natural habitat amid a natural mountain landscape featuring bushes, rocks, streams and forests.
The bear sanctuary can be easily reached by the Arosa Weisshorn railway. It has a restaurant, toilets, visitor platform and children’s playground. The Arosa bear sanctuary also organises tours through its reserve.
The Arosa bear sanctuary is easily accessible by train and by car. It takes about 40 minutes by train from Chur to Arosa. Those travelling there by car can park in the Obersee or Ochsenbühl park garages in Arosa.
